More than £8,000 has been raised to help restore the garden at the former seaside residence of King George IV.

The Grade II-listed garden at Brighton's Royal Pavilion was restored to its Regency design during the 1990s but many of the plants need replacing.

The Royal Pavilion and its garden were designed for King George IV, who was Prince Regent for almost 10 years, by architect John Nash in 1815.

The forms of the flowers and seed pods reflect the Pavilion domes and spires.

The money, raised by the Royal Pavilion and Museums Foundation, will help pay for renewed planting in the heritage beds on the estate as well as adding a brand new heritage bed to the south side of the gardens.

Councillor in charge of tourism and a trustee of the foundation, Geoffrey Bowden, said the long-term plan was to make the Pavilion and estate "a world-class heritage attraction".
